American Express is running its popular Shop Small promotion again this year with an exciting, new twist.
This time round, American Express Card Members can earn up to a whopping 40,000 bonus points by shopping with small merchants over the next twelve months!
Shop Small is traditionally held for a month in the lead up to Christmas, but this year’s shift to an always-on initiative aims to assist small businesses that have been affected by the Covid crisis as they navigate the road to recovery.
It’s also a great opportunity for Amex cardholders to get more out of their spend as life returns to ‘Covid-normal’.
Here’s how the promo works.
American Express Card Members who first save the Shop Small offer to their eligible card will get three extra points per dollar spent with participating small businesses until 31 March 2022, in-store or online, up to 40,000 extra points.
To save the offer, find it in the “Offers” section of the Amex app or your account online.
There’s no cap on the number of registrations, but be aware that additional/supplementary cards are not eligible – only the primary card on each account can earn bonus points.
Thousands of small merchants around the country are taking part in this initiative, from coffee shops to boutiques and more, and this includes micro-businesses that use Square payment terminals.
If you’re not yet an Amex card member and would like to take advantage of this promo, check out the reviews of our favourite Amex cards here where there are some great sign-up offers.
